Open-Ended Application Period for Department-Authorized Messenger Services to Provide Decentralized Driver Licensing and Vehicle Registration Services by Means of Mainframe Connection

[30 Pa.B. 4306]

   The Department of Transportation (Department), acting through its Office of Driver and Vehicle Program Services, intends to expand its existing program of decentralized motor vehicle and driver license services to permit additional applications of interested and qualified Department messenger services. The Department will authorize approved applicants to provide face-to-face, decentralized service to customers via a Messenger Service Center connection with the Department's mainframe computer. Successful applicants will be able to provide these services through one or more sites approved by the Department.

   The authority for this expanded program can be found in Act 166 of 1992, P. L. No. 1250 (found in the Appendix to Title 75 Pa.C.S. at pages 15 and 16). The Department will approve qualified applicants on a case-by-case basis as the applications are reviewed.

   To be eligible for participation in this program, an applicant at the time of application must be an authorized Department messenger service actively engaged in such service for two years. The Department will not consider any applicant sanctioned by the Department for any violation of statute or regulation within that two-year period.

   Interested messenger services may obtain a copy of the application procedures and program requirements by contacting the Program Administrator for Decentralized Services at the address and phone number listed at the end of this notice. Completed applications shall be mailed to the same address:
